Coins have been in use since before the birth of Christ whereas the doller (from the german word thaler)was first minted in the 16th century in Germany. The word later became associated with the coins regardless of where they were minted. This led to the widespread use of the word as currency nowadays such as in the US, Australia, and Canada. --Killymcgee 03:31, 2 June 2009 (UTC)
